The Tigers were a 4-3 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Indians. That made winners of bettors who got Detroit at -174 on the moneyline, while the total score (7) was good news for UNDER bettors.

Bettors on Chicago at -117 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (9) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
